How Manchester United Could Lineup In A New 3-5-2 Formation Against Leicester City

On Saturday, Manchester United will travel to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City in a closely contested Premier League match. Man United enter match week 8 in fourth place with 14 points and without two of their key centre-backs, Captain Harry Maguire and Raphael Varane, who are currently injured. Manchester United will deploy a new defensive system against Leceister City, led by Phil Jones, Erick Baily, and Victor Lindelof, with the aim of keeping a clean sheet. 

Man United have lost their last two meetings with Leicester City, and as a result, manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under enormous pressure to upset the hosts. Solskjaer is likely to start David De Gea in a new 3 5 2 tactical formation for Manchester United, flanked by Phil Jones, Erick Baily, and Victor Lindelof. Luke Shaw, Wan Bissaka, Paul Pogba, Bruno Fernandes, and Donny Van De Beek will form Manchester United's midfield, while Marcus Rashford will lead the attack alongside Cristiano Ronaldo.
